How do I connect multiple ThunderSync16 Thunderbolt to USB products together to create more USB ports?

scroll down

ThunderSync16 is a great product offering a fast Thunderbolt 2 host interface and 16 high-speed managed-USB downstream ports for devices such as the Apple iPad, Android tablets etc. Occasionally, there is a need for more than 16 ports which means that you have 2 options:

  • Connect 2 ThunderSync16 products to a single host (this assumes that the host has 2 Thunderbolt 2 ports available).
  • Daisy-chain 2 ThunderSync16 products together using the expansion/daisy-chain ports built right into ThunderSync16 itself.

The PDF below shows how to connect multiple ThunderSync16 products together to achieve downstream port counts much higher than 16.
